I like this shot. You've captured an expression quite well- it conjures an image of a middle aged Scottish gent relaxing by a fire, having a drink. I think you can strengthen this presentation by burning/vignetting the logs and increasing the contrast of the groundhog's fur. Really play up that expression. Well done.
Thanks - believe it or not, the expression wasn't just accidental - this little critter would stretch and yawn, then roll over on its side and snooze a little, then get back upright and look around like it owned the place. A lot of fun to watch.
